Sotomayor Confirmed

The Senate voted yesterday to confirm Sonia Sotomayor as the first Latina and third woman to ever sit on the United States Supreme Court.

The 68-31 final tally saw nine Republicans voting in favor — nearly a quarter of the Republicans in the Senate, and frankly more than I expected considering the amount of partisan invective that many of them were throwing around. It would seem that some were perhaps less concerned this time about appealing to the rabid right and more about not pissing off the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States.
